Want a modern living room, dining room; layout ideas needed

Hello everyone, we are in the process of purchasing a house (not yet closed) and need ideas of how to layout the entire home. Previous owners had an ornate style with classical/traditional furniture (see photos.)

We plan on switching to a modern theme (no purchases except a modern "sputnik" type lighting fixture, and plan on matching the old sconces by the mantle.) Walls are Venetian plaster which I plan on redoing in cool colors but on the fence since walls are in great shape.

Seeking ideas in furniture layout in the living room, dining room...I do not know the exact dimensions but my approximate room size is about 17.5 feet x 22 feet

Probably a long sofa/2 chairs or retain the a sofa/loveseat/1 chair combination used by previous homeowner although is seems inefficient and sparce. And something to NOT showcase the mantle.

In the dining room, a modern long table for 6-8 guests, possible bench seating?

Help and insight is appreciated, thank you.
